about

A Kobzar is an itinerant Ukrainian bard. The tradition, established in the 16th century, survives history to this day. Often blind, the Kobzars played a type of lute called the bandura, singing epic poems and songs that are the Kozak equivalent of a spiritual. Many of the melodies here come out of that tradition. We took lots of liberties with the folk material -- adding our own and blending it with the many different kinds of things we like about music.
